From all of us at Equality NC, Happy LGBTQ+ History Month! As we head into the thick of election season, we're thrilled to bring you the incredible stories of LGBTQ+ people whose stories have shaped the political landscape this year. Many of these folks are our Out Electeds – openly LGBTQ+ elected officials – whose work is central to building a more equitable North Carolina for us all.

As you reflect on their journeys to leadership this month, we invite you to get engaged in this election cycle as we fight for pro-equality leadership through the electoral process. Are you registered to vote? Do you know who you're voting for? We need you in this fight as we inch closer to election day on Nov. 8.

Thanks for all that you do for Equality NC and for North Carolina.
